Partnership Agreement Example

Below you can see example partnership terms, earnings, and value of joining under our Pathway to Partnership program at Legacy Veterinary Group!


This opportunity is unique for our group in that the partnership is offered from the beginning and does not require the usual 3-year or revenue target basis for offering. Upon initiation of the employment contract, the doctor will be eligible for a Profits Interest Award of 10% of the outstanding shares of the practice.

This profit interest will be awarded if practice revenue is maintained at, or above, previous revenue levels during the first six months of employment. Two additional factors will be considered when making this award:

  1. ability to work together with our team according to our core values and
  2. positive feedback and initiative from the candidate about this practice and the group as a whole.

The value of this award is summarized above given the historical performance of FVC, the target summary noted previously and is consistent with other group practices. A practice of this size when viewed as a single practice will command about 4.5 to 5 times of the earned income. When considered part of a group of practices like ours, this value is typically 3 times this amount.
